A Poem a Day (51): This sea

Well, it's Friday again. Been out for pizza with a lovely friend, gained some calories and lost a jacket (luckily they have it, so fingers crossed it's there tomorrow), and now it's time to write with JD Mader over at his home, Unemployed Imagination - www.jdmader.com/2015/06/2-minutes-go. The idea is to write for 2 minutes - some people write longer - and you just go for it, without looking back and editing. Head over to play or just read. Have a great weekend! :) 


This sea

It sweeps over
This sea
Drowning everything
It sees
The motion
The being
The feeling
In the in between
Secreting inside
This skin

Patience defies
It all
Gasping to be free
To be itself
In the moon tide
Restless in transit
Enlightened, fading
And rising again

The potion
Of the wisest man
Seeks to dispel
This almost knowing
Wishing for clarity
While walking
In grey
In signs still blurred
In lines in twists
Within

Scurrying forth
Beneath this sea
Washing all over
The hands beneath
We dance in circles
Sing in rhyme
Travel in the mind
To find our own kind
In the waters
Secreting our soul.
